CA Screenshot 3 1 UPDATE: Technicolor CineStyle Color Assist Now Available For FPCX (and FCP7 and PP)

*UPDATE* 04/08/2013

It is this time of the year when everybody is in Las Vegas, geeking around at NAB.

Plenty of websites are covering every single announcement way better that I will ever be able to from the other side of the world, but I thought I would share with you this update from Technicolor.

To start the week, the company announced that their grading tool Color Assist is now also available for FCP X. Color Assist was originally launched last December (see original article below) for FCP7 and Premiere Pro.

The application works with PC and MAC, and gives you a choice of 25 looks for a cost of $99.

Watch the video at the end for a demonstration of what can be done with Color Assist:

Last year Technicolor provided a friendly plugin to all DSLR users, CineStyle Profile, that flattens the image and thus leaves more room for color correction in post.

Few months ago they did the same for GoPro.

This week they take it to the next level, bringing CineStyle Color Assist, an external program to easily and efficiently (they say) color correct footage from either FCP7 or Premiere Pro CS5 and CS6. The program will also be compatible with FCPX sometimes during the Q2 of 2013 (another sign the industry hasn’t ruled out FCPX from the pro landscape).

The program presents itself as an easy-to-use version of more advanced programs (such as DaVinci Resolve or Magic Bullet) for the reasonable price of $99. Of course, one of the key element here is that if you are filming with the CineStyle Profile plugin, then CineStyle Color Assist comes as a perfect complementary tool to easily enhance your footage.

You don’t have to shoot with CineStyle Profile to use Color Assit, but the two are complementary.

Now the question is, would you consider buying CineStyle Color Assist even though you already have strong tools within your editing program?
